Really enjoyed our visit here. The owner was very welcoming. The roulette wings were very spicy - the owner brought us a glass of milk in case we couldn't handle it! It became a battle of wills between us as to who would weaken and have the milk! We only just managed not to need it. The burgers were lovely... More

Whilst visiting Axminster, we visited this restaurant for lunch. It had been recommended to us, it was dog friendly and easy to find. The staff were very friendly and attentive and gave wise advice on the different choices. In the end we all went for Burgers, including a Man v Food burger (a 3 tier behemoth) tackled by my teenage... More

There's a varied menu representing all sorts of American cuisine, but we opted for the traditional burger, fries and milkshake. The food was delicious and well cooked. The staff were very friendly.

We drove on recommendation about 35 minutes to visit here and we weren't disappointed. We had two great meals, corn dogs and man vs food burger which were delicious and desserts too. The service was wonderful and we left very happy, thanks for a brilliant evening :)

Just returned from a nice lunch here. We were in Axminster and fancied a spot of lunch somewhere. We looked at then menu in river cottage which looked nice but I couldn't find anything that we really liked. Having walked just a few meters we stumbled access the Route 66. It's not the biggest place and the toilet is kind... More

When we first moved down to Somerset we visited here when we collected the keys to our new house, food was great. We returned years later and although new owners the food was once again simple but brilliant. If you like burgers and this type of food, it is a must to try if in the area. Other food available,...

A small diner based on the amerian model. The food was tasty, hot and well presented and served. The owner was very helpful with regard to the menu and what to visit in the local area. Would definitely visit again.
